Random Fun Stuff: Bohemia Mines Edition

I found a couple of cool old photos of the Bohemia Mines on Pinterest.

The first shows a woman riding the ore tram from one mine to the other.  The caption says Margie Knowles but I do not know if that was the person in the photo or the photographer. Anyway, it looks like it was a fun way to get around up on the mountain.

This one shows the aftermath of a tough trip up Hardscrabble Grade.  Even today a trip up the Grade often results in an overheated engine.
